I hope to start restoring my 1954 F100 this year.
I am considering attempting to make it all EV.
Where could I get some plan ideas on how to start
this process?Hi, Tony -
Check the EV Discussion List.
Here's a thread conversation between some guys on that list who are discussing the merits of converting a classic car vs. converting a late model bar-o-soap.
The guy in the video up there is Jack Rickard, and I did an interview with Jack recently on something interesting he's doing that you might consider...
He's taking light fiberglass replicas of old classics like the Porsche Speedster and powering them with AC-50 electric motors and LiFePO4 batteries.
